TOMORROW: Kentuckians Value Fairness Day – we need you!

February 23, 2010

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Tomorrow marks one of the most important days of the year for achieving statewide fairness and you can be part of it.

The Fairness Campaign, the ACLU of KY, Kentucky Fairness Alliance and a host of other progressive groups throughout the state will be driving down to the state capital tomorrow to take part in Kentuckians Value Fairness Day, which will be a call to action for legislators to pass a statewide fairness bill.

Even if you’ve never lobbied, you are still encouraged to come. There will be training throughout the morning, with various groups speaking to legislators. If you are in need of a ride, the Fairness Campaign will be carpooling at their office (2263 Frankfort Ave.) at 8 AM.

The event culmulnates at 1 PM with the “Rally in the Rotunda,” which includes testimonies by legislators, students and everyday folks like you who support passing fairness protections for all citizens, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

A schedule of events throughout the day:

8:00 a.m.- Carpool from Fairness office (2263 Frankfort Ave., Louisville)
